tv On the Record With Greta Van Susteren FOX News May 16, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
fake chatter. saggy papers. >> thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for tonight, fair, balanced and unafraid. greta goes "on the record" right now. tonight "on the record." all your news right here and watch out. the british, they're coming. not for you. but for donald trump the war of words escalating between presidential candidate. also, 2016 chaos. no, no, that's not a trump event. that's a democratic convention in nevada. the chaos erupts ago secretary hillary clinton struggles to take out democrat bernie sanders. how is that going? business leaders on alert. al qaeda warns it is targeting america's great business minds. who? catherine herridge is standing by with that al qaeda chilling new warning. "new york times" taking heat for article about donald trump's past. in the article the "times"
creates to report how trump tweets women in private. one woman says the newspaper took her words and twisted them. >> what was your reaction when you read this article yesterday? >> >> actually, it was very upsetting. i was not happy to read it >> why? >> well, because the "new york times" told us several times that they would make sure that the story i was telling came across. they promised several times they would do it accurately. they told me several times and my manager several times that it would not be a hit piece and that my story would come across the way that i was telling it and honestly. and it absolutely was not. >> what did they get wrong? >> well, they did take quotes from what i said and they put negative connotation and spun it to where it appeared negative. did i not have a negative experience with donald trump. and i don't appreciate them making it look like saying
that it was a negative experience because it was not. >> you knew him well, right? you dated him for several months? >> that's correct, yes. he was never -- he never made me feel like i was being demeaned in anyway. he never offended me in any way. he was very gracious. i saw him around all types of people. all kinds of women. he was kind, thoughtful, generous. he was a gentleman. >> and donald trump tweeting today with the coming forward today with the woman central to the "new york times" hit piece on me we have exposed the article as a fraud. business woman and former apprentice contestant omarosa now working with the trump campaign is here to go "on the record." nice to see you, nice to see you as well. >> i think the bombshell will be if it turns out that the interview of the "new york times" with this woman was taped or not but we haven't heard that yet. that may at least let us know who is on first as to who is telling the truth on
it you say it's a hit piece, why? >> absolutely. it's a hit piece because you look at what this woman has said that she said he was nothing but a gentleman. that he was very charming. that he was kind. those are all elements of this interview that they left out because they wanted to characterize donald trump in a very negative way. this piece was probably already written before they even interviewed this woman and they dropped names in it. it really does come down to politics and this idea or trying to paint a picture that donald trump has a problem with women. >> i must confess the part in the article that says that his father once told donald trump's girlfriend not to order the fish but to order the steak, you know, i must have read that paragraph three times. i still don't figure out why they are sticking it on father and what's wrong with the father of donald saying she should have steak instead of fish? >> i think it's odd that donald trump actually hired a woman in the 80's to be a construction manager. a trailblazer in hiring a woman in an industry that
generally does not hire a woman to lead and pointing out that his father may not have liked that. but without seeing the irony that donald was, in fact, appointing a woman to a very important position at a time when people generally wouldn't do that. i think that shows that he holds women in a very high regard in his business interactions as well as in his personal interactions. >> does it mean anything to you that that article was above the fold, on the front page. it took two reporters six weeks? >> it took you almost 600, 700 words to really get into the story to see where is it that they are seeing that donald crossed the line it seemed like to me a tabloid piece. it was very interesting that with all of these people that they interviewed that there were these random people who i think in the past want to do tell these stories but why didn't they? why didn't they share these stories before? donald has been running for almost a year now. not to undermine anything that they have said but just to say to you that i have never ever wednesdayed donald trump act inappropriately with women and i have worked with him
closely for 13 years. >> his language is rough and rude and boorish to women sometimes. >> i find donald trump's language is nothing like a politician has ever been. that's why people are connecting with him. he tells it like it is. he tells it straight. he doesn't have a speech writer some politically correct message. that's what's resonated with so many voters, greta. >> is the "new york times" gunning for him or do you think they thought it was good journalism? you said it's a hit piece. >> it's so clear to me that they were trying to sell lots and lots of papers which they have done but it's been undermined. the credibility of this story goes out the window when their opening story about this woman is ely called to question by the woman who said that's not the characterization that i was given. in fact, i was assured this was not a piece that would really paint anymore a very negative way. i think this story really shows that there will continue to be a dialogue about donald. certainly, he has work to do in the area of building greater relationships with women voters. but donald has really
started a movement because he has a true vision for this nation and he wants to see change for all americans. >> i would certainly like to know if there are any tapes about the article. i'm going to at the end of the show say what i think about the article so omarosa i hope you will stick around or dvr it or something. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for being here. >> donald trump has had a lot of feuds and add great britain to the list. david cameron are trading words. >> i think his remarks are divisive, stupid, and wrong and i think if he came to visit our country i think he would unite us all against them. >> the british prime minister david cameron recently said he stands by his comments that your position on muslims was stupid, divisive, and wrong. >> yeah? >> he retract them and apologize for saying that. >> honestly i don't care. >> if you are president and he is the prime minister. >> looks like we are not going to have a good relationship. who knows? i hope to have a relationship with him.
sounds like is he not willing to address the problem either. >> would you like him to withdraw the particular comments that you are stupid, divisive and wrong with your view. >> number one i'm not stupid, knock can i tell that you right now. just the opposite. number two, in terms of divisive, i don't think i'm a divisive person. i'm a unifier unlike our president now, i'm a unifier. >> it's not just prime minister david cameron trump has angered the new london mayor khan. >> i think donald trump has ignorance about. >> i wish him well. let's see if he a good man. >> are you offended by what he said. >> yeah, i am. he doesn't know me. never met me. doesn't know what i'm about. they viewed statements and tell him i will remember those statements. very nasty statements. >> now, what could this spat mean for our relationship with i can't great britain. former united states ambassador to the united nations john bolton goes "on
the record." good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> assuming that it is president donald trump and david cameron and khan, what does that mean? >> the important thing is relations between nations depend less on personal relationships among leaders than people think. i'm not saying they are unimportant. but fundamentally any leader who bases his policy on anything other than a very clear eyed view of the national interest isn't doing his job. now, in terms of the remarks themselves, i think in david cameron's case he made the same mistakes that about 99% of america's political consulting class made in thinking there was no way that trump could get the nomination. so i think his initial remarks were kind of a throw away. the fact he wouldn't back away from some of them shouldn't conceal the fact that he also said that if trump were elected he would work with him which is something that roughly 190 other heads of government around the world will say if donald trump wins.
now, in terms of mayor chan of london important city in london. for american president if trump is elected khan is a munchkin in politics he shouldn't dignify his remarks with request a response. >> president obama was there and made a remark at that breakfast june 23rd referendum whether england exits the european union. now we have a situation where the prime minister sent a statement a little while ago and the mayor of london essentially talking about our political scene 2016. and i actually think most americans will get their nose out of joint that the brits are, you know, putting their nose in our business. >> absolutely. as did the british a public opinion poll obama's intervention rebounded against those who wants to stay in the european union. to come back to mayor chan,
you know, you have to wonder at some point whether he has political instincts better than a block of granite or whether he is under somebody's employ to help trump get elected it is almost universally the case that have having foreigners lecturing americans. if they keep at it the other leaders around the world ayatollah in tehran tell us how you would prefer to deal with hillary clinton as president. that is exactly the kind of thing that produces the reaction they purport not to want. >> ambassador, nice to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> and the 2016 democratic slug fest boiling over in las vegas. senator bernie sanders reporters yelling foul at the oevada democratic convention. his supporters outraged, even accusing state party leaders of rigging the process against him them and sanders. things got so heated chairs
began to fly. [chanting] >> why were sanders supporters furious in the "on the record" political panel is here. susan father rich choo and u.s. news u.s. news and "u.s. news and world report." we have chair-throwing. >> a much different anger -- level of anger. in their own party things are rigged because this is a three-part system they have to elect delegates. sanders had been ahead and once they got to this convention, some of the sanders delegates lost their standing by this unilateral
ruling by the chair. so they felt wait a second, you know, we were ahead here and now you are changing the rules so that hillary clinton is ahead. and that's been somewhat of a theme throughout the primary process although she has been ahead by a couple million. she has won delegates through the super delegate process that a lot of people think is unfair. >> he has no chance of getting the numerical number. is he there to get his point across to supporters. we thought hillary clinton would be have it locked up by now and look at this. >> yes. she won the state of nevada by six points. some of her delegates were also disqualified. we should note that. i think five. whereas bernie it was 58. state party leaders said that bernie's people, delegates, were not registered democrats by may 1st so they say they were outgamed. they weren't organized well here. they are making the protest but there are legitimate
claims why they were diseastled. >> does this give us a hint about what we can expect in philadelphia or not? does he calm his supporters? i think there will definitely be protests, i think, it depends on them though, incumbent on him to say -- to sort of spur his supporters on or calm them down. >> how could she not have them wrapped up by now? for the life of me, i can't figure this one out. >> i think he captured the sentiment of a lot of people on the democratic party that they are not though are being left out of the process. themes very popular college and healthcare how can he be an outsider he harry has been in the senate for 25 years. >> he promises free college.
>> i come back when he was an insider he couldn't get anything done and now he says he is an outsider and offering pie in the sky and she can't get rid of him. >> he came out of nowhere because he was under the radar. >> is that a way saying he is under the radar is a nice way of saying he didn't get anything done for 25 years. >> a lot of these young people weren't even born 25 years ago and they don't care. >> they don't care what you are able to do in washington. we saw that in primaries this year. >> it's unbelievable. i'm stunned. >> his momentum continues definitely. >> anyway, susan and david, thank you. the supreme court's job is to decide but scratch that the court decided not to decide. they decide to do punt. the court unanimously refusing to rule on religious challenges to the birth control mandate under obamacare that undecided case has been punted to the lower court. shannon bream is here to go "on the record." shannon, what happened? >> we got this decision today and basically it's a
procure they extended the arguments earlier this year. they took unusual move the justices did asking both parties to brief some additional questions could they get closer to finding a solution. both parties made clarification what they could do to inch together toward a compromise. today instead of deciding the case the supreme court and a number of them bundled together sent them all back to the allweleyn at that time courts, the circuit level with the guidance with the two parties in mind try to work it out. >> one, two things, i tip my hat to the supreme court although their job is not to be are arbitrator and mediator. they are to decide cases. because it's the lawyers down below they would rather fight. lawyers down below for the justice department and behalf of the petitioners could have done that a long time ago without getting the court involved. >> this religious group order of nuns and others have been saying we have been trying to work something out to the government. they have tried to make sure
that women have access to healthcare. number of companies grand fathered in and been exempted. the government has found a way to get them healthcare. >> the government never tried to protect the religious right of these nuns. >> if you would have met us halfway we wouldn't be here. listen, by the way. a couple things the court said today we are not ruling on the merits. while this plays out, you can't fine or penalize any of these religious groups. the little sisters of the poor facing $70 million a year in fines if they ultimately lose. >> to me it's unbelievable they got this far that the justice department couldn't work this one out. maybe act as a mediation panel instead of the court. shannon, thank you. >> sure. >> one of the nuns for little sisters of the poor will be here in a minute to go "on the record." number of companies participating in state exchanges is dropping. that means no competition and that means higher prices. arizona slammed hard.

more turmoil on a college campus a display honoring our men and women vandalized at dartmouth college. replaced black lives matter sign. it all began with when dartmouth put up national police week display. black lives matter activists took matters into their own hands. michelle nez because goes "on the record." nice to see. >> hi. nice to to be on. thank you for having me. >> on friday, you had this display up honoring the police; is that correct? >> yes. and what happened? >> so the nice before thursday evening at around 11:00 p.m. we put up our display with some statistics about police officers, who have been victims of violence before. we had statistics about september 11th, every 61 hours a police officer is murdered in the united states in general and the
next morning we got up and we saw that our display was torn apart and replaced with black lives matter. later that day we went through. we talked to the administration and there was a lot of mixed signals around 5:00 p.m. we were told that we were not allow to do replace our display. throughout the entirety of the day 25 black lives matter protesters were standing in front of billboards. not only did they replace our billboard with their display they replaced all of the other billboards in the student center with black lives matter posters and posted pictures with sons of old dartmouth written over it. >> how did the university respond at that point? >> so through the entirety of the afternoon on friday, the administration had very mixed signals to us. they initially told us we would be allow to do replace our poster but by 5:00 p.m. this had drastically changed and with the consultation of other administrative branches, and safety and security, we were told we were not allow to do replace
our display because they feared for some safety concerns and we would be allow to do return at 2:00 a.m. when the student center had close to do replace our display. but, during the entirety of friday and saturday we had heard very little from the administration and so we decided on friday evening to write a letter to the president of the college, the student body in general, and the board of trustees to get some understanding as to where the administration stood. then friday, finally on sunday, 48 hours later after the display had been destroyed, we got a letter from the administration condemning what occurred. >> all right. now, back in november, there was a situation that black lives matter had some display and there was something ripped apart there. was this considered? was this a retaliation for that? is there any connection between those two events? >> it's very hard to tell. what happened in november is very different. the display was only altered slightly.
very late at night and it's very hard to tell. one thing is for sure about that event is the administration took a much quicker and much stronger stance on what occurred. and in addition to to what the administration wrote about our organization's display on sunday, they expedited the process of black lives matter protesters to put up a display right next to ours. so that was something that was really a double standard in this situation and from the school's duration. duration. >> >> medal safety of valor. are some the highlights from today's ceremony. ♪ >> officer solace, officer sparks and and captain placed themselves in morality danger to place student and staff during a a

as you mentioned of not -- of being protected from the fines because they are just huge at $70 million a year. and also for the court to have recognized legitimacy of our religious liberty concerns. it was a good day. >> mark, i'm surprised the court did. this i think it was a wise thing to do. i have never seen the court act like a mediator. first they heard the argument, then they said a day or so later we want you to answer the questions. and now okay here is a solution. go figure it out and fix it run. >> precedented for the court to have to take that role and really a shame that they have had to do it. for years the sisters have been saying if you can a k. do it for all these other people in the country you can find a way to do it without me it shouldn't be hard to give out contraceptives without nuns involved. we're happy that the court has told the lower court think about it again. they have pointed out that the government has said we have other ways to do. this that's all the sisters have asked for. >> when the case was first filed i thought as a lawyer
i thought boy that's the last thing i would want to do is go up against the sisters. that's about your worst nightmare as a lawyer. i mean, tell me a little bit about your order. how many nuns are there in your order. >> there is about 2300 nuns internationally. we serve the elderly, poor in 31 countries. here in the united states we have 27 homes. and we are about 300 little sisters. this really effects our houses here in the united states. >> it would have wiped you out. no one could have paid $70 million a year. what did you think was going to happen. >> we didn't have a flan we lost. we have been around since 1839 and god has protected us and provided for us all those years. we just have been praying like crazy and trusting that he was going to see this through to a good resolution. >> did you go to the argument in march? >> yes, i was inside. >> what did you think? >> it was very interesting. it was a once in a lifetime
experience. i was impressed with that i was equally impress with the rally of our supporters outside. it was just a wonderful day. >> mark, what i don't understand though is even how it got to that was the justice department unwilling to negotiate something -- which would carve the sisters out from doing something that conflicted with their religious beliefs? >> yeah. unfortunately that's the case. the government has backed up an inch at a time. they simply won't do the right thing and says contraceptive delivery doesn't have to involve catholic nuns. they should have given them exemption like they did to lots of big companies across the country. >> why wouldn't they? >> you have to ask them that question. they refused. they said they need to make sure anybody who depose and works for catholic nuns can get these drugs. they don't take the same approach with big companies like exxon. >> churches had carve out but the nuns didn't. >> that's correct. >> goes back to what? >> 183. i take it your beliefs vice
president changed since 183? >> no, no. >> this isn't a surprise. you didn't just pull a fast one. >> somehow the administration made a distinction between churches and work of the church whereas for us we feel just as much a part of the church, just as much church as the church, the parish down the street. there is no distinction. >> what's really ridiculous is that the sisters would stop take care of the elderly, poor, and sit in their homes and pray, then the government would say they are exempt. because they go out and do the wonderful work they do they are covered boy the mandate. >> thank you both very much. why did a baltimore police officer testify against his fellow officer?

courtroom blunder today in baltimore. prosecutors in the freddie gray trial calling officer edward nero's fellow officer to testify against him. that decision may have back fired and actually helped the defense. "on the record" griff jenkins is in the courtroom today. griff goes "on the record" in bearnlt. >> after wrangling for the first time. one of these six officers testifying against another. first time in maryland history criminal defendant forced to neff testify in a criminal trial before his own trial. officer nero testified today he alone apprehended and handcuffed freddie gray. that is significant because the prosecution alleges that nero exceeded his legal authority in arresting gray in the first place and in doing so committed assault. nero is charged with four counts, second degree
assault, reckless enendangerment and two counts of misconduct. officer miller also went on to testify that when it comes to seat belting detainees that it is solely the responsibility of the police wagon operator to make sure that freddie gray was seat belted and he went on in regards to this being a new requirement, a recent general order mandate, miller simply said that it's never come up in "roll call" in the days leading up to it defense argues their case tomorrow. speculation this case could be wrapped up as early as tomorrow or wednesday. it will go to judge berry williams. this is a bench trial. no jury it could wrap up quickly. >> is s. there any word whether the officer nero will take the stand in his own defense. >> we do not know that court watchers told me when i asked that question they don't expect it because
miller was so strong in nero's defense so why put him up there is what they told me. greta? >> griff, thank you. the "on the record" legal panel is here. former prosecutor katy phang and ted williams. ted was also inside the courtroom today. so, let me go to you, ted, ted, if all officer nero did was load him into the van, he didn't handcuff him, he didn't seat belt him and didn't drive recklessly, what in the world is he doing there in this trial? that. >> is the 64 billion-dollar question, greta. greta, it was high drama in the courtroom today. and you've got to wonder. you have to sometime in life be careful what you ask for. the prosecutors decide to do compel officer miller to come and testify officer miller may have blown their case to smitherenes it's up to the judge to make that final decision.
>> katie, first of all, calling the officer, he has his own trial coming up. we have that crazy situation where the appellate court in maryland said that a police officer could be compelled to testify against another police officer before he doesn't have fifth amendment right for instance. we never got a reasoning for that decision. the court just ordered that, right? >> that's right. we never actually got a written explanation as to why the appeals court decided that officer miller and officer porter would be force to do testify -- and miller would be force to do testify against officer miller. ' officer porter never testified. after all of that drama porter was never called to testify. i don't know if it was an audible called by marilyn mosby's office to testify today to porter. maybe they thought when miller testified it went down hill. smirl facing the same exact charges as nero. nero got to take a test
drive of his case and got to see whether or not barry williams is going to buy what nero is selling and what miller is selling. >> i wouldn't put -- the way it's portrayed by griff, i wasn't in the courtroom and ted i wouldn't put nero on the stand. i would put it in front of judge. loading someone in a van is not criminal conduct. he didn't handcuff hip, make arrest, he also didn't put him in the van and had no obligation to seat belt him according to the regulations. i would leave it at that i wouldn't leave it at that with the court of appeals in maryland i think what they did was terrible. first of all i think the ruling was wrong and secondly they don't have the guts to explain it i don't know why the cops didn't have a family of first fifth amn everybody else does. ted? >> you are brilliant. i wouldn't after the testimony of miller. and at the close of the government's case today, the defense moved for a judgment
of acquittal and the judge said that he was looking at the case in the light most favorable to the prosecution. he kept repeating at this stage. at this stage. and plain words, miller did not help the prosecutors in this case. it hurt them badly. it wounded them, greta. and you can see the expression on the prosecutor's face. >> you got 20 seconds, indicatey. katy, bench trial vs. jury. >> bench trials are interesting because typically the jurors wear the hat of the finders of fact. judge williams is wearing both of the hats. finder of fact credibility of witnesses and also apply the law as the judge. it's always a calculated risk. you can't appeal to sway or influence the judge. >> i have got to go: i got to cut you right off there because i have got to go. ted and kate katie.
donald trump vs. the "new york times." what do i think? off-the-record next. they still refer to me as "gunnery sergeant" when i call being a usaa member because of my service in the military to pass that on to my kids something that makes me happy my name is roger zapata and i'm a usaa member for life. usaa. we know what it means to serve. get an insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life.
not to be focusingo finaon my moderatepe. to severe chronic plaque psoriasis. so i made a decision to talk to my dermatologist about humira. humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores.
let's all go off-the-record. make sure you hear, this i'm not, let me repeat. i'm not in favor of boorish behavior toward women. i'm not. it's bad behaviors whether what about, woman, democrat or republican. what was the "new york times" thinking putting this article out about donald trump on the front page and above the fold. the headline reads crossing the line, trump's private conduct with women. placing this there the "new york times" is acting like it thinks it has just felt another set of the pentagon papers. and what does the article say about trump? one of ceet players in the piece disputes the story saying the "new york times" twisted her words. there is more. what else the news? that trump uses boorish
words? who didn't know that? trump had a spat with rosie o'donnell years ago that got plastered coast to coast. everyone knows that note to the "new york times," this is not investigative journalism. it's old news. but, with a new agenda i can't help but wonder where was that "new york times" front page above the fold piece about all the boar issue things said about another woman sarah palin? >> it's not the woman the "new york times" cares about. they care about their agenda. ps note to media be fair to hillary clinton, too. that's my off-the-record comment tonight. it's time for your campaign flash, secretary hillary clinton making a last-minute push in kentucky. secretary clinton held an event at transylvania university, kentucky vote tomorrow. bernie sanders is in puerto rico. puerto ricans will hit the polls on june 5th. that's tonight's campaign flash. that's all for now. see you tomorrow night 7:00
